Sandra West's eccentric Ferrari burial still a spectacle in San Antonio after nearly 40 years

By Rebecca Salinas | February 20, 2015 | Updated: February 20, 2015 1:26pm

 

Sandra West (Jan. 2, 1939-March 10,1977) was a Beverly Hills socialite and wife of Texas oil tycoon Ike West (Aug 29, 1934-January 1968). When she made her will, she requested that she be buried inside the car (shown here) “with the seat slanted comfortably."

 

A 1964 powder blue Ferrari 250GT is buried at a historic cemetery on San Antonio's East Side, but the concrete box that the classic sports car is entombed in is not alone.

 

Sandra West, a wealthy Beverly Hills socialite whose 1977 death made national headlines, was buried in the front seat of the Italian supercar in an elegant, white nightgown. Scissors-32x32.png
